Gilly is the perfect cat! He loves attention and cuddling. He would like nothing more than to cuddle all day long. He purrs constantly and really enjoys being around people. All you have to be willing to do is sit next to him. He's wonderful with other cats and will eat almost anything. He enjoys going for rides in a stroller, for walks on a harness, and on sleepovers. We affectionately call him 'Gilly Monster' - the friendliest and most loving monster around. He was born in 2012 and came from an animal rescue in California that closed. He has Feline Leukemia (FeLV) and chronic respiratory issues, for which he takes medication. He will need to live with other FeLV+ cats, or be an only kitty. If you are able to accommodate Gilly's special needs, he would be your perfect love monster.
